Indapamide is the active medicinal component in Lozide and is part of the group of medications called diuretics which are often prescribed as first-line therapy for hypertension, or high blood pressure.
Lozide is indicated for the treatment of mild to moderate hypertension.
Lozide is a diuretic antihypertensive agent which acts in the kidneys to draw excess water from the bloodstream and excrete it in the urine. This lowers the pressure in the blood vessels and decreases the workload of the heart.
Take one 1.25mg tablet orally in the morning as a single dose. If this dose is not effective after four to eight weeks, the dose may be increased to a maximum of 2.5mg. If the response is still insufficient, another non-diuretic antihypertensive medication may be needed.
These may not be all the side effects of Lozide 1.25mg.
Do not take Lozide if you have low blood potassium levels, have severe kidney or liver disease, have heart failure or are allergic to any of the ingredients listed on the package.
You may become sensitive to the sun while taking this medication, so limiting your sun exposure is recommended. Athletes should be aware that this medication may cause a positive result in doping tests. Tell your doctor if you have heart rhythm problems, hyperthyroidism, lupus, gout or heart disease before taking this medication.
Keep out of reach and sight of children, and store at room temperature. Please note the expiry date on the carton or blister pack and do NOT use after this date.
Blood pressure is represented with two numbers which measure the force on the blood vessel walls as the heart beats (systolic) and when the heart rests (diastolic). Generally, high blood pressure means a reading of 140 systolic or 90 diastolic or higher. Elevated blood pressure increases the risk for heart attack and stroke, especially if you have other risk factors like obesity, smoking, or diabetes. The damage from high blood pressure tends to build up over time. The heart becomes enlarged and weakened. High blood pressure also hardens the arteries, making them less elastic over time. As the arteries harden with plaque, blood clots become more likely to form which can lead to heart attacks.
